Livestream from lockdown | VIDEO | Dr Bruno Bower on the fluid worlds of Victorian arts and sciences

As part of our fundraiser for The Felix ProjectDr Bruno Bower, Teaching Fellow in Music at the University of Surrey, and Evening Class Lecturer at Imperial College London, presented a lecture on May 4th 2020: The Fluid Worlds of Victorian Arts and Sciences.

A doctor writes about wind instruments, a lawyer researches wrestlers on behalf of an African explorer, a hostess links everyone up, and music runs in the background throughout. This is the fervid intellectual climate of the Victorian era. Bringing together a diverse range of people we wouldn’t normally think to connect (if we remember them at all), this talk will show how freely ideas could circulate in a less disciplinary age.
